UK vs. THE WORLD! (20)

UK vs. The world is a weekly meme I made up lol.
It's simlair to UK vs. US except the UK covers are battling it out with their foreign counterparts from all over the world, because who doesn't love judging books by their covers!

UK                           vs.                           Italy
Daughter or smoke and bone book one.
('La chimera di Praga' translates to 'The chimera of Prague.' - According to Google translate.)

Mist: I really like the gorgeous colours of the UK cover and the feathers but that Italian cover is stunning and a clear winner for me, I love the position and expression of the model and the lovely blue hair and those bright eyes, her tatoo is really cool to, the whole cover is just amazing.

Ninfa: Wow, two beautiful and so different covers.
The UK one has always fascinated me, it's dark and I love the feather texture of the design. The tag line is also haunting and intriguing.
The Italian cover though...I just adore it, I love the model with the blue hair and the suggestive tattoo of the breaking feather, it's so cool.
I love her big icy blue eyes and the image of the buildings flaring up in smoke at the bottom.
I think it'll have to be an ITALIAN WIN!

UK                             vs.                   Indonesia
I am number four book two
(Note: The UK cover is the adult version, there is a YA version to but I decided not to include it.)

Mist: I do like the Indonesian cover but I prefer the clean feel of the UK, I really like the bubbles and the colour, the Indoniesian cover does have this pattern to and the fire is coo but I don't really like the drawings, UK win!

Ninfa: I'm not too sure about the Indonesian cover. It's okay, and I like the fire exploding behind the characters (it reminds me of a scene in the "I am Number 4" movie ), but something about the whole ensemble doesn't quite grab me. It looks more "teenager-y" orientated in my opinion.
The UK cover I love. The green colour, the tattoo in drops, it's very beautiful and clean cut.
And although the Indonesian cover is not bad, I think it's a UK win for me

Which do you prefer?


  1. I think I'd go with Italy's cover of Daughter of Smoke and Bone and the UK's of The Power of Six. It's interesting to see the differences between various places.. Thanks for sharing!


  2. I'd go with the UK cover for both of them. :) I don't really like the Italian cover to be honest.

  3. I do really like the Italian DOSAB im going the uk. its just so pretty in person. And for power of six. Neither. i actually prefer the YA UK cover.

  4. I love the Italian cover for The Daughter of Smoke and Bone but the UK cover is really pretty too .. :)

  5. I don't care much for either Daughter of Smoke and Bone cover. I own the US one and I like that one more.
    For Power of Six I definitely like UK more.

  6. Both of those Daughter of Smoke and Bone covers are nicer than the US cover, in my opinion. Not that I don't think the US cover is nice also, but those two are way more interesting to me. I love the feeling of texture I get from looking at the UK cover, but that Italian cover is pretty fabulous!


Go on, comment and tell me what you think of this post... I dare you!
